    Abstract

    Over the past 5 years, there has been increasing focus on the construction industry within the UK, most notably the construction of residential houses and property. This focus has highlighted the lack of housing, which is being built within the UK, especially within London. This lack of housing, paired with the increasing property prices that are being experienced across the UK, are contributing to what has been called ‘Generation Rent’.
    This research report reviews the current issues that surround the UK construction sector and property market. These issues range from political factors and initiatives, which various governments have implemented over the course of their tenures, to social and economical trends that have dictated the outcome of relevant markets. The consequences, which may be experienced within London and the rest of the UK if these issues are not address, are also analysed and stated within this report.
    It is clear that the demand for property within London and the UK is high, but it is this demand that is placing the UK in an uncomfortable position due to the lack of supply.
